Check to make sure the ink is not dried on the output surface of the cartridge. If problems persist, try a non refilled cartridge to see if the problem can be reproduced there.

HP cartrdges are 'BubbleJet'
that is the jets arer part of the cartridge.
These can Block, especially in warm climates.
Take cartrisge out.
Moisten a tissue with water-with some alcahol in its if available
stand the cartridge in it with the jets in the damp tissue for 24 hours
Then re try
Come back if still in trouble

My printer is new, when I am printing /photocopying and even printing default test page, the print output is very light in the way where one cannot see. Please help, i am stuck on my first day


Go into the printer properties and set the default on the print type you want. It sounds as if you are printing in "Draft" mode which saves ink.

Black ink not working


Your black ink printer head might be blocked by dried materials. Try to open your printers maintenance software and execute head cleaning procedures. Try to print a test page after every head cleaning or you may run print head diagnostics. If the black ink still doesn't print, try to use another black ink cartridge and compare with initial results.

After replacing my color cartridge my printer won't print in color. but it will copy color pages perfectly.


When you go to print from IE check the prefrences and see if it is set to Monochrome. It should be under the Advanced tab.

Even if you are not using it for printing, the ink inside the cartidge will be dry, some solutions composed in the ink can be easily be dry if it is exposed in excessive heat or cold..

My HP Deskjet F4140 was working fine until I got a piece of paper stuck. I removed and now it wont print. States printer off line and can not print a test page. IT will copy however.


Turn it off. Unplug the power cord from the printer & usb wait a minute. Plug USB in & than the power cable & turn it on. Next
Open the Printers folder.
Right-click the icon of the printer in use, and then click Open .
Click Printer on the menu, and then ensure that there are no checkmarks next to Pause Printing or Use Printer Offline . If a checkmark is present on either, click the menu option to remove it. If the menu shows Use Printer Online , click that option.

HP Deskjet 840c - Printing Emails


I did see you reinstalled your software) but please continue
It is important that you have that icon by the clock. Power off the printer by pressing the power button on the printer.
Please un-install your printer software through Add/Remove Programs within the control panel. Please restart the Pc after un-install is complete. Create a folder on your hard drive and name it, "HP DeskJet 840C". Go to this link listed below & download the printer driver software listed. When you save to disk you can choose where you want to save. Pick the folder you created. Save inside this folder. The HP driver (Will most likely be updated software). I promise, you will have a icon down by your clock when finished.

Follow the instruction in your manual for setup & installation.
If you using Outlook Express & you want to print or send through your printer the page should be set as 8.5x11". Orientation should be set to Portrait, unless you set this for A4.
Lastly, please turn off your anti-virus software during install & re-install. Just in case you come back to this thread!
please vote...
